Controversy has followed the celebrity couple (who first gained fame on MTV’s The Hills) across the pond, as they’ve earned the dubious ‘most hated’ title while appearing on England’s Celebrity Big Brother 11.
Castmates gripes about their behavior include: not participating in mandated tasks for the show, not following rules of the house, overt displays of public affection, and, of course, their blistering words.
On a recent episode, the duplicitous duo ripped their housemates, particularly Rylan Ross Clark, a model who’s appeared on the U.K.’s version of The X Factor.
After the verbal shellacking from the couple, Rylan shot back, “This is their chance to show who they really are to the fans, the public, they’ve just sat there and said, ‘We hate them all‘ … I don’t want any one of them to win, and I’m fake.
“F**k them. You have played us like a f**king fiddle!”
Out of the house, many British celebrities have tweeted their distaste of Speidi’s underhanded antics during the course of the English reality show.
Among them: Fashion personality Gok Wan, who tweeted, “Rylan has got to win. Speidi get right on my wok! X;” and actress Nadia Sawalha tweeted, “#cbb ohmygod!!! I hate them!! Sooo two faced !!!”
